Their objective is to recommend a balanced stamp program that will have broad-based appeal and culturally, reflecting Canadian history and tradition. Before Canada Post calls a meeting of the committee, it welcomes suggestions for stamp subjects from Canadian citizens. Ideas for subjects that have appeared on a stamp are declined; the committee works two years in advance and can approve 20 subjects for each year. Once a stamp subject is selected, Canada Post's Stamp Products group conducts research.

Designs are commissioned from two firms. The designs are presented anonymously to the committee; the committee's process and selection policy have changed little in the thirty years since it was introduced.

Rape of Persephone

The Rape of Persephone is a classical mythological subject in Western art, depicting the abduction of Persephone by Hades. This resulted in the myth surrounding the creation of the seasons, as Demeter mourned the time that Persephone spent in the Underworld with her husband. Created between 1636 - 1637, Peter Paul Rubens depicted the abduction of Persephone in a piece entitled The Rape of Proserpine; the piece was intended to decorate the lost Torre de la Parada, as such was owned by the Spanish Royal family. This was copied in the 17th century by Juan Bautista Martínez del Mazo in oil on canvas under the name of El Rapto de Proserpina, again reproduced by the Real Establecimiento Litográfico de Madrid in the 19th century for the purpose of printing and distribution. Painted in around 1631, The Abduction of Proserpina has been attributed to Rembrandt, although the painting remains unsigned the style and composition is indicative of being a legitimate Rembrandt, it is displayed as a part of Gemäldegalerie, Berlin permanent exhibit As part of a set of oil studies intended to be used for painting the ceiling frescoes in the Palazzo Medici Riccardi in Florence, the Mythological Scene with the Rape of Proserpine was created with the intention of being presented to Marquess Francesco Riccardi for approval before being painted in the palace.

Ten of the twelve oil studies created between 1682-1685 reside in the National Gallery. This painting on a large wooden panel is entitled The Abduction of Proserpine, it was painted in 1570, spent most of its life residing in the Villa Salviati after being commissioned by the Salviati family. The Rape of Persephone, a painting in the Macedonian Tomb I in Vergina, dating from the mid 4th century BCE; this in situ mural is indistinguishable, other than the figures of Hades and Persephone themselves on a chariot. This list is by no means exhaustive, but seeks to highlight some prominent examples of the myth in Western paintings. Examples include: The Rape of Persephone, by Pinturicchio, in the vault of the Piccolomini Library in Duomo, Siena The Rape of Proserpina by the Italian artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini, a large Baroque marble sculptural group, executed between 1621 and 1622 Media related to Rape of Persephone at Wikimedia Commons

UFO (1956 film)

UFO is a 1956 semi-documentary about the development of the UFO phenomenon in the United States. Clips from the documentary have been used in other UFO documentaries and television episodes related to UFOs. In 1952 Hollywood producer Clarence Greene saw an unusual object twisting in the sky, he decided to report the sighting, contacted US Air Force public information officer Albert M. Chop, in charge of answering UFO questions from reporters and the public. Intrigued by his experience, Greene decided to film a documentary movie about the UFO phenomenon; when Chop told Greene about the existence of film footage of UFOs, Greene obtained the footage for analysis and display in his documentary. The documentary starts in 1947, with the first publicized UFO sightings in the United States, including recreations of the Kenneth Arnold UFO sighting, the Mantell UFO incident, the Gorman Dogfight, it traces the development of UFOs as both a popular fad and a serious concern for the US Air Force. The history of Project Sign, the first Air Force study of the UFO phenomenon, is discussed.

The documentary focuses upon Albert M. Chop and his growing involvement with UFOs. Chop is assigned as the public information officer at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, in the late 1940s. In that position he is required to answer numerous news media queries about UFO sightings and what the Air Force knows about them. Although he is portrayed as a UFO debunker, Chop changes his views as the movie progresses, he comes to believe that UFOs are unknown, extraterrestrial, aircraft. By 1952 Chop has moved to DC, where he is the press spokesman for Project Blue Book; the documentary analyzes two famous pieces of UFO footage: the Mariana UFO Incident of 1950, in which the manager of the Great Falls, Montana minor-league baseball team claimed to have filmed two UFOs flying over the local baseball stadium, the 1952 UFO film taken near the Great Salt Lake in Utah by a US Navy photographer, Delbert Newhouse.

30th Guards Rifle Division

The 30th Guards Rifle Division was reformed as an elite infantry division of the Red Army in May, 1942, based on the 1st formation of the 238th Rifle Division, served in that role until after the end of the Great Patriotic War. It would soon after help provide the headquarters cadre for the 7th Guards Rifle Corps along with its "sister" 29th Guards Rifle Division. However, it was not assigned as a unit to the Corps until August when it joined 33rd Army of Western Front and saw extensive fighting, while suffering extensive casualties, in the summer campaign against the German 3rd Panzer Army in the southern sector of the Rzhev salient. After leaving 7th Guards Corps the division was reassigned to several other armies in the Front until April, 1943 when it joined the 15th Guards Rifle Corps in 30th Army, which became 10th Guards Army the next month; the division took part in Operation Suvorov, Western Front's summer offensive towards Smolensk, after the liberation of that city was involved in several unsuccessful drives on the Belarussian city of Orsha.

By December the 30th Guards had been redeployed to 2nd Baltic Front and during the summer and fall of 1944 it took part in the offensives through the Baltic states, winning a battle honor for its part in the liberation of Riga. For the rest of the war the division remained in Latvia helping to contain the German forces trapped in the Courland Peninsula coming under command of Leningrad Front. In mid-1946 it was converted to the 30th Separate Guards Rifle Brigade; the 238th had been formed on March 14, 1941 at Alma-Ata, Kazakhstan in the Central Asia Military District, based on the 499th Reserve Rifle Regiment, so began with personnel of Kazakh nationality. On May 3, 1942 it was awarded the Order of the Red Banner in recognition of its leading role in taking the town of Aleksin from German 4th Army during the counteroffensive in front of Moscow and the liberation of Kaluga. On May 24th it was further distinguished by being raised to Guards status. After the subunits received their redesignations on June 20 the division's order of battle was as follows: 94th Guards Rifle Regiment 96th Guards Rifle Regiment 98th Guards Rifle Regiment 63rd Guards Artillery Regiment 35th Guards Antitank Battalion 34th Guards Antiaircraft Battery 33rd Guards Mortar Battalion 32nd Guards Reconnaissance Company 33rd Guards Sapper Battalion 42nd Guards Signal Battalion 29th Guards Medical/Sanitation Battalion 31st Guards Chemical Defense Company 28th Guards Motor Transport Company 38th Guards Field Bakery 28th Guards Divisional Veterinary Hospital 690th Field Postal Station 563rd Field Office of the State BankCol.

Andrei Danilovich Kuleshov remained in command of the division after redesignation. At this time the division was under command of the 49th Army in Western Front, it remained in this Army until August when it was reassigned to the 7th Guards Rifle Corps, along with 5th Guards and 17th Rifle Divisions, in 33rd Army. In the planning for Western Front's summer offensive against the eastern face of the Rzhev salient at least one map-solution was prepared in June for a prospective offensive by 49th, 33rd and 5th Armies to seize Vyasma, although this came to nothing; as the planning continued 33rd Army was considered for advances in the direction of Gzhatsk and west of Medyn. In the end the Army was to be given a large role in the offensive; when the Army joined the offensive on August 13 it faced six German infantry regiments along the front line on its breakthrough sector but had only a 3.5:1 advantage in infantry and 1.6:1 in artillery less than the other Soviet armies involved, apart from 30th Army on the opposite end of the offensive front.

Given this relative weakness in force correlation and the fact that the main offensive had begun more than a week earlier, eliminating any element of surprise, the attack of 7th Guards Corps and the rest of 33rd Army soon faltered. The Army resumed its offensive on August 24 and made some penetrations on 3rd Panzer's front, but these were soon contained. Another effort was halted three days later. During this period 20th Army was attempting to reach Gzhatsk but went over to the defense on September 8. For the rest of the month the southern armies of the Front were engaged in "battles of local significance". From August 10 to September 15 the personnel losses of 33rd Army are listed as 42,327 killed and missing while gaining from 20-25km to the west and northwest; the heavy losses were attributed to "densely-packed formations... There was no coordination between fire and maneuver..." among other factors. In September the 30th Guards left 7th Guards Corps to become a separate division, still in 33rd Army, but in November it was moved to the adjacent 5th Army, joining its "sister" 29th Guards in preparation for a new offensive against the salient.

In planning for this offensive Army Gen. G. K. Zhukov conceived a two-phase operation beginning against the northern part of the salient to be known as Operation Mars, with a subsequent phase to the south under the name of Operation Jupiter. During October and November the German 9th Army noted a Soviet buildup in the sector east of Vyasma, including the 3rd Tank Army, two tank corps, reinforcements for 5th Army, including
